    Abstract

    Coxiella burnetii is responsible for Q fever, a worldwide zoonosis attributed to the inhalation of aerosols contaminated by livestock birth products. Six draft genome sequences of European C. burnetii isolates from ruminants are presented here. The availability of these genomes will help in understanding the potential host specificity and pathogenicity and in identifying pertinent markers for surveillance and tracing.
